St. Luke's Volleyball Wins Thriller Against GA

Daniel Clarke
The St. Luke’s varsity volleyball team won a thrilling five-set contest against Greenwich Academy on Tuesday, Sept. 28, advancing to 3-0 for the season.

The Storm recorded its first win against the Gators since the 2017 season and demonstrated it has the potential to be a real contender in this year’s FAA title race.

St. Luke’s raced to a 2-0 lead, winning the first set 25-13 and the second set 25-17. GA came back fighting and took the next two sets 12-25 and 20-25, before the Storm clinched the deciding set 15-13. 

St. Luke’s played a great match on both sides of the ball with 33 overall kills, 12 aces, and 47 digs. Angie Hendricks ‘22 had 10 kills and three aces, Brielle Renwick ‘23 added eight kills and six blocks, Sam Stevelman ‘22 produced four aces, and Kiara Copeland ‘26 chipped in with three aces and 11 digs.

Head coach Garrett Minyard was delighted with the win and the on-court celebration that followed: “??We knew playing GA would be a battle, but I think the victory proves we are a real contender in the FAA this year. This win is a milestone for our program and a true embodiment of the aggression and resilience we practice and preach every day. Seeing the team and the crowd rush the court after the game-winning point and feeling the raw emotion of that moment was pretty awesome.”

Next Up: The St. Luke’s varsity volleyball team travels to Canterbury School on Saturday, 
Oct. 2, before another road trip to Holy Child School on Wednesday, Oct. 6. The Storm is back on its home court on Friday, Oct. 8, when they play Greens Farms Academy.
